CIM at the debate of the future of the industrial production

The Auditorium Pompeu Fabra of 'Col·legi d’Enginyers Industrials de Catalunya' will play host to the conference organized by the magazine "Automation and Instrumentation 'debate. These conferences will be designed to reflect on the real impact of disruptive technologies such as additive manufacturing or Idustrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in the environment of productive industry.

The event will be divided into two discussions that will take place throughout the day. The director of the 'Fundació CIM', Felip Fenollosa, will participate in the first of these debates, which will be entitled 'Towards an own model of Industry 4.0'.

The focus of this first round table will revolve around the introduction of additive manufacturing and IIoT into the industry and its consequences. This continues to be a step towards the digitization of the Spanish production sector picked up in the white paper known as "Connected Industry 4.0: the digital transformation of the Spanish industry", presented by the Ministry of Industry in October last year.

This aims to develop the local supply of digital solutions to the problems that may arise in the production process of the local industry and help developing competitive levers that encourage and promote its exports.

Among others, in the roundtable discussion questions designed to wonder whether the definitive introduction of technologies like 3D printing in the industrial process will or not suppose a huge revolution in the sector. At present there is an equilibrium in which the major industrial players on a global scale, with advanced automation models dominate the market; meet new local actors trying to break into it.

So, it will discuss whether the implementation of additive manufacturing technologies, as drivers of small local actor, affect that market equilibrium favoring the merger of both levels and setting up a new industrial model.

This conference will take place on January 20th in the Catalan capital, beginning at 9 am and whose conclusions and they will fired at 13h. If you want to assist fill the form HERE
